We were approached to create a dual office in a delightful home in the leafy Cheshire village of Prestbury. The home’s owners had been renovating their 1930s property one room at a time. The building is symmetrical and spacious with typical art deco features such as large windows and high ceilings. The couple were keen to design a dual modern home office space to allow them both to work from home and had ear-marked a large room on the ground floor with views of the garden.
The couple have their own unique working style, and after collaborating with our team, both agreed on a cohesive design that would be fluid enough to adapt to their individual requirements for desk space, storage and shelving. Our designer could immediately visualise a modern home office that embraced the architectural features in the room and got to work, creating a bespoke, millimetre perfect, made-to-measure solution that works seamlessly for both partners.

Working with What You Have
If you think a modern home office solution is a stretch too far in an older property, think again. Many period properties have unusual alcove spaces that can be transformed into useful storage areas or as a backdrop for stylish mood lighting. They can even be clever places to hide tech that you don’t want on display but need to keep close by.
Because the home is built in an art deco style, it benefited from beautiful symmetry and plenty of space. Our designers worked with the architectural influences and developed a design with symmetry at its heart.
To create a real talking point in the Prestbury property, our designers embraced the extra height in the room. We developed a beautiful bespoke floor to ceiling storage solution that maximised the unique dimensions of the room, putting every inch to good use and ensuring a sleek and clutter-free working environment.
Modern Home Office
Storage and Shelving Solutions
When you work from home, you have the perfect opportunity to showcase your favourite pieces within your workplace. Our clients selected open storage and floating shelves to add interest to their modern home office and to bring their personalities into their working world. The shelving that they chose was perfect for their collection of books and to display sculptural pieces.
Wall Mounted TV
The couple wanted a stylish TV wall so that they could keep up-to-date with current affairs while working. This request was easily incorporated into the symmetrical design, with a flat-screen TV centrally positioned, with no visible cables, surrounded by neat and sleek cabinetry.
While this modern home office has two separate working spaces, we were able to design it cohesively, using a combination of colours and finishes. Our clients selected Grey Avola and Orchid – contemporary and calming neutral shades that are perfect for home offices. Muted tones are thought to promote wellbeing and productivity. The woodgrain in the Avola finish gives the office a natural warmth and integrity and adds interest to the room.
Our lead designer on this project said:
“This beautiful room lent itself perfectly to our modern dual office solution, giving both professionals plenty of space, storage and room for individuality. I love the off-set floating shelves that add character to a symmetrical space. The end result is a light, bright and uniquely designed office that has been perfectly crafted to suit the exact working needs of the couple.”

Our new staircase looks fantastic. We’ve had lots of compliments and it has transformed our hallway. The whole experience was great from beginning to end, from discussing our requirements to the finished article.
Mr & Mrs Begbie, Hampshire
I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.
Mrs K Holroyd, Wrexham
From our initial enquiry to the completion of our staircase, we have found all the members of the team at Neville Johnson to be very helpful, courteous and professional in all our dealings. The staircase has transformed our living space. We have been very impressed with this company from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Pauline Treston, Northumberland
From the initial contact with the company to the completion and installation everything was utterly professional; we have no hesitation in recommending the company to anybody. We are so pleased, that Neville Johnson is returning to install a new staircase!
Mr and Mrs Thorpe, Radcliffe
From the outset of our contract with Neville Johnson, we were supported with design choices, given expert advice and all deadlines were met. Everyone was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The craftsmanship is superb; our staircase is now an outstanding feature of our open plan lounge.
Judith Scorer, Stockport
From contacting the company to the point where the cupboards were fitted I was impressed by the whole process. The initial salesperson that visited was knowledgeable and helpful. I would certainly use Neville Johnson again and highly recommend this company.
Mrs S. D, Lincolnshire
From the moment the brochure was delivered, I was optimistic that we were buying quality. I wasn’t disappointed. All contact made was courteous, polite and clear, with phone calls confirmed by email. In short, we’re really thrilled with our library and it was effortless from start to finish.
Alison Cole, Swinton
From the initial meeting with the senior designer to discuss our needs, to the surveyor and then the installer, we were extremely delighted with the end result. The installation process went without any problems. All the staff were very professional and we would recommend Neville Johnson without hesitation.
Rosalind Tunnicliffe, Solihull
The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.
Cherry Murdoch, London
A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
